murders that involved one stolen gun in each case. >> i'd say it's about a 50-50 shot for the firearms that we recover for them to be stolen. >> reporter: frank serves as branch chief for the crime gun intelligence headquarters in washington, d.c. >> we essentially have to wait for a crime to occur in order for us to recover these guns. >> reporter: nbc bay area and more than a dozen nbc teams teamed with a nonprofit journalism organization to find out how guns circulate around the u.s. although more than a thousand law enforcement agencies turned over their data to us, here in the bay area it's impossible to pinpoint how much crime is tied to stolen guns because two of the bay area's largest police departments, along with lapd, refused to share what we believe are their public records. the data we do have makes clear that the number of stolen guns continues to increase nationally, including a spike in guns stolen from cars. >> if we don't get a handle on this problem, that number is
6:34 pm
just going to keep rising and rising. >> reporter: our data shows 71,000 guns have been reported lost or stolen here in california alone since 2010. >> even though california has stricter gun laws, their theft rates are still high. >> reporter: kevin o'keefe says atf frequently finds stolen guns turning up a long way from where they were stolen, although he says the majority of stolen guns are later used in crime near where they were taken. >> most of the time we finding the guns recovered in the same space or metro area or near metro area from where they were stolen. >> we traced 135 guns stolen in other states that ended up in california at crime scenes. one of the guns used in the u.p.s. mass shooting was stolen in utah. guns from mesa, arizona, connected to crimes in hayward an sban jose. a palm beach county florida stolen gun connected to a drug crime in san diego. >> you will see geography dictates a lot. we have seen some concerted
6:35 pm
efforts to take guns up the iron pop lin pipeline, the i-95 corridor where guns are more restrictive. >> reporter: our data shows 41% of all stolen guns are used in a different city or county from where they were stolen. >> if i'm a gun owner and i'm responsible, part of that responsibility is to make sure it's stored properly. >> reporter: u.s. representative from walnut creek isn't just talking about civilians. he says law enforcement officers also must secure their weapons. our investigation found bay area law enforcement agencies alone lost or had stolen at least 750 firearms since 2012. >> you can't just leave them around. >> reporter: he has introduced legislation in congress to hold federal law enforcement officers accountable for keeping their guns locked up. >> so we know if they're properly locked and stored, they're less likely to be used in criminal activity and less likely to be stolen. >> reporter: although bill scott declined several interview requests, we caught up with him at a town hall meeting.
6:36 pm
>> are you worried about the problem of stolen guns being used in other crimes. >> i'm always concerned about guns on the street and stolen guns tend to end up in hands of people that have bad purposes. >> reporter: chief scott admits his department has to look in the mirror on this issue too. in september, one of his own officers had the gun stolen from his car. that gun was later used in a suspected gang-related murder. >> your own officers have had guns stolen from them. what are you going to do to stop that? >> we have to look at whether they're following the policy. i know we had a very high-profile incident and that is one of the issues that we are right now looking at, whether policies were being followed. so we'll -- we're not above the law. >> reporter: gun rights advocates, such as the national shooting sports foundation and the nra say don't punish the victim for this problem. in a statement to us, the nra said, quote, a law that requires reportage is nothing but punitive. it does not prevent crimes from being committed and it only serves to further victimize
6:37 pm
otherwise law-abiding persons after they have been robbed. the nra does back another bill that's currently before congress which would increase prison sentences for those who steal guns. see our national story on missing pieces plus a breakdown of all these numbers plus interactive graphs and maps all on our website. just go to nbcbayarea.com/weinvestigate. i'm stephen stock, nbc bay area news. >> thank you, stephen. if you have a story for stephen or anyone in the investigative unit call 888-996-tips or nbcbayarea.com/weinvestigate. up next, hitting the air waves this week. the reason tobacco companies are being forced to make new ads on television an radio about the dangers of smoking. d radio abou dangers of smoking. u-s service members, after a

6:41 pm
were guilty of fraud because they downplayed known health risks. the ads allowed them to come clean. >> i think a lot of people assume that the war on -- the battle against tobacco use is kind of over because everybody knows tobacco is not good for you. and yet it continues to be the leading preventible cause of death in this country. >> last year california voters approved a proposition increasing the cigarette tax, which is now one of the highest in the nation. if you're getting ready to cook thanksgiving dinner, a warning tonight. the california department of public health says food borne illnesses are common around the holidays because of improper handling of food. the temperature of the turkey should reach 165 degrees. that also includes the stuffing inside. any surfaces used to prepare food should be washed thoroughly. >> when you wash a raw piece of poultry, whether it's turkey or chicken, you really run the risk of spreading the bacteria that are on the surface of that turkey around into your sink and onto the countertop.
6:42 pm
and so the safest thing to do is just cook it as is. all those bacteria will be killed in the process. >> the most common symptoms of food-borne illnesses are diarrhea and in some cases vomiting and fever. but those are unpleasant res that we don't need to think about before we start gobbling up our food. >> tonight is a big night. a lot of people are at the bars an restaurants because no one wants to cook tonight. everyone is out tonight. >> you have to starve yourself to get ready for tomorrow. >> nice weather if you're doing any traveling across the bay area tonight, but we are tracking some rainfall offshore. i'll let you know about the best chance over the thanksgiving mall d holiday coming up in a few minutes. airline delays are inevitable but we think we can help you avoid some of the sluggishness. nbc bay area responds, next.

6:45 pm
through flight steps to try to steer you clear of some of the flight hassles. >> good evening. we focused on trying to figure out the best strategies for avoiding flight delays. first off, we learned that nationally 20% of flights land late, so some strategy might be useful here. some passengers are so conditioned to constant flight delays they have just adjusted their schedule as well as their mindset. >> it is delayed like i usually add an hour or so into my trip because of that. so we arrived on time so i felt like we arrived an hour early. >> to help reduce your chances of a flight delay, we sifted through lots of government airport data. we now know when to fly. tuesdays and saturdays have the least flight delays while fridays and mondays have the most. that's not all the numbers show of the tonight at 11:00 more. times of day, airlines, and the bay area airports with the best record as well as the worst,

weather here in seattle, also portland. rainfall still approaching portions of florida and most of the action is moving out of here in the northeast with a lot of this rainfall starting to push out. so currently in terms of airport delays, we're not seeing any from the east coast towards the west, but i do want you to watch out in seattle, portland and orlando tomorrow morning. we could have some rainfall delays returning. now, here across the bay area on your thanksgiving morning when you're inside hopefully watching the parade right here on nbc, we get a mix of sun and clouds for the south bay right on over towards the tri-valley. temperatures in the low to mid-70s. we have a slice chance of showers in the north bay and also for san francisco. as we head through the day for tomorrow, it's still going to feel kind of odd outside for november. temperatures 10 to 15 degrees above average. we'll have a chance of the sun breaking through the clouds in the south bay. 75 in los gatos, 72 in downtown san jose and 73 in morgan hill. more of a cloudy situation here
6:49 pm
for contra costa, alameda counties. vallejo 68 degrees, livermore 70, and then over here towards hayward 69. for the peninsula we're clouded up here with mid to upper 60s. that kind of makes it a little better for not only the thanksgiving dinner but also for those leftovers. no excuses but to just sit side and enjoy yourself. okay, into san francisco, 66. cooler 64 here for the embarcadero. for the north bay, napa 71, sonoma 68, over to point reyes, 63 degrees. maybe you're not in the bay area but will hop in the car in a last-minute road trip. data shows that thanksgiving continues to get busier and busier for these last-minute trips. we'll have a split situation in california. heading from the bay area up to redding, there's a slight chance of showers. temperatures in the 60s to 70s. if you're headed to southern california, plenty of sunshine, 85 in los angeles, 91 in palm

springs. enjoy it if you're headed to so cal. on the extended forecast, the best chance of rain coming our way looks like saturday night into sunday, also for monday. it's going to be on and off chances of wet weather. i'm pip pointing about a quarter inch of rain over the three days so it's not a lot but certainly is something that might get your travels wet if you're going to be traveling on any one of those days. then we start to see things clear out by next tuesday and also wednesday. temperatures early next week also begin to drop back down. it's going to feel a lot more like fall once we hit sunday. 66 for the interior valleys. low 60s by next monday and tuesday. oh, man, you guys, i'm getting tortured. at home i'm getting pictures of all kinds of food that's being made for tomorrow. it's hard to concentrate. the last one had little marshmallows on top. >> that's the yams with the marshmallows. i love that.

guessing all week but he didn't. and why. >> one, it would be exhausting to talk about this every day for you guys. two, i don't see the competitive advantage. >> reporter: the reason, he says, c.j. beathard and jimmy garoppolo have similar styles, thus, there would be nothing to gain by keeping it a secret. beathard coming off his best game as a pro which resulted in the team's first win of the year. his confidence growing every day. >> the more you play, the more your playbook expands a little bit and the more things you can do. and i think this will be my fifth start and i think i can handle a little bit more week in and week out. >> reporter: garoppolo, he spent the bye week doing the same thing he's been doing since he was traded for in late october, trying to get up to beathard's speed in the playbook. >> new england had certain things that i was just used to. after three and a half years of being there, you get comfortable with it and you feel like you mastered the language that they had. it's just trying to pick it up as fast as i can here now. >> i struggled in all foreign
